CARING FOR YOUR NEWEST ADDITION
Classified as working breeds that can be traced back to their rich European history, both German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois are large, athletic breeds that require exercise. As stated earlier, these intelligent dogs are designed with purpose---they need some sort of daily activity or rigorous training which is why so many are utilized as service dogs for attack, protection, nose-work and even sledding.
When raising your Shepherd or Belgian Malinois, having them professionally trained by experts (like Brain Smith) is ideal. Keeping a set routine for walking and exercise is a must for these impressive breeds. Like many dogs, Shepherds and Malinois are affectionate, social animals who love engaging with others. Households with lots of play and children present will prove to be very suitable.
